Help Peachtree City charity Midwest Food Bank win Chick-fil-A grant


Midwest Food Bank Georgia is honored to be one out of five finalists out of the entire Southeastern region of the U.S. for the Chick-fil-A True Inspiration Awards.

A combination of a lengthy grant application submitted by the Midwest Food Bank grant team along with a nomination from Doug Barnett, Chick-fil-A Operator of Starr’s Mill, Towne Center and the new Senoia locations, resulted in Midwest Food Bank being chosen for this opportunity out of 2,400 nonprofit applicants.

All finalists will receive $30,000 but Midwest Food Bank can receive up to $200,000 through a process encouraging the community to vote through the Chick-fil-A app.

“This is an incredible opportunity for Midwest Food Bank Georgia to win a significant amount of grant funding that will make a far-reaching impact,” said Pat Burke, Executive Director of Midwest Food Bank. “This grant funding will be used to remove economic limitations that hinder growth to the brokering and transportation of donated food allowing us to increase the amount of food we can provide at zero cost to our 235 nonprofit partners. We are asking our community to support us through voting. It is easy to do so and will make a difference in the lives of our neighbors going through difficult times.”
